The Minffordd Hotel is much more than a snowdonia hotel, but rather a charming retreat with a good restaurant & cosy bar serving a good range of wines and traditional local ales and beers Let good company, a warm and friendly atmosphere create a special holiday break for you. Original parts of the hotel are over 450 years old, previously an old drover’s inn, set in the picturesque steeps sided Tal-y-llyn valley here in south snowdonia national park. with low beamed ceilings, many original features still visible, and of course a blazing log fire………..!!

Situated in the Talyllyn valley at the base of Cader Idris Mountain (it is literally in our back garden) with the start of the Minffordd path only 2 min walk way from our front door. We are also in the Mach Loop where the low flying jets can be seen daily flying down the valley & just above the tree tops

We are situated in the Mach Loop which is a set of valleys, situated between Dolgellau in the north, and Machynlleth in the south (and from which the Mach Loop gets its name), which are regularly used for low level flight training, with flying as low as 250 feet (76 metres) from the nearest terrain. To the south of the Mach Loop there is an area called Tactical Training Area 7T, in which, at specified times, the aircraft may fly as low as 100 feet (30.5 Metres)

Many of our guest come to watch, experience and photograph these jets screaming down the valley
